Hello, friends! It is so hard to believe that the holidays are just around the corner. When did it become the end of 2016?! Personally, for me, it has been one of the BEST years of my whole life. I have loved ~ a l m o s t ~ every second of it! That being said, I had way too much fun designing our christmas cards and graduation announcements this year. It is just that I love receiving christmas cards and look forward to seeing how everyone’s family grows over the years!
A tradition that I am carrying over from my family growing up into my new little family is to write a Christmas letter letting everyone know about the big events that happened during the year (adopted Felix, got married, graduated college…). I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this time of year and Tiny Prints is helping me celebrate!

First of all — can I just say that creating cards on Tiny Prints is the easiest thing EVER?? I have used a LOT of card designing sites for things like my wedding invitations, high school graduation and helping my mom do our family christmas cards for years. Tiny Prints makes it so easy and simple to choose your design and then customize it.
I went with their foiled cards for my Christmas cards. It looks so elegant and beautiful and captures the magical year we had! We used a wedding picture because we looked DANG GOOD in them and why waste that??? Couldn’t do it. SO there you have it.
For our graduation cards, I chose a square style because of the simplicity. I focused on having our faces be the center of attention and highlighting the fact that we were, ya know, GRADUATING COLLEGE. LOL. Am I old enough for this???? Who said I was ready to be a real adult???? #notme.
Something else I love love loved was that you could customize the envelopes. I made sure to choose the envelope style that included pre printing our address on the back. It already takes long enough to write out everyone’s address — I don’t need to double that. AND I could add liners to the inside of my Christmas card envelopes to add that touch of c l a s s. The cards are thick and heavy, which I love. They are made of beautiful card stock and the envelopes are thick, too. The quality is extremely apparent.
The other thing I loved about Tiny Prints is the fact that they care about each and every one of the orders that goes through them. You get an emailing letting you know when your order has been finished editing and when they ship. You can opt for a designer to look over your card design before printing to make sure everything is absolutely perfect for FREE! I love that because sometimes I am typing quickly and I misspell something or I miss a word. It is nice to know there is an extra set of eyes there!
Do you have any fun traditions that you like to do every year? Does your family do Christmas cards? It is seriously so exciting to me to get Christmas cards in the mail. I love decorating my fridge with my friends and family!
Let me know in the comments what big event you were most excited about this year!
As always, thanks for stopping by.
